First attempt 150m (164 yd)
« on: December 03, 2018, 08:25:25 AM »
My first submit on 150m (164yd). 3 hit the 4 MOA circle. 2 missed.

Rifle: Gamo G-Magnum 1250 Mach1 IGT .22
Scope: Hawke Sidewinder 30 6.5x20-42 Tactical
Pellet: JSB Exact Jumbo Heavy Diabolo 18gr

Shooting position.



Target at 150m (placed at large white plywood) you can see it on a third bank. I place it low, explenation at the end.



Target. I don't have A3 printer. So I printed on A4 1:1 ratio and then draw 4 MOA for 150m.



Distance to third bank.



4 MOA



Group



Target analysis



This is why I placed target low, and change the shooting line. Angle is soo high that the pellet hit wooden structure before the target. See the picture.



I am going to have an issue on 200m. I will have to do it from prone position, if possible even then.


Video of last two hits. First is the bottom one, that you can see. The second one is, I belive, one the edge of a target. You can hear the sound of pellet impact.
Video quality is very bad, I was focused on shooting. I did not pay attention on camera.

You can see more targets. Middle one I am aiming. I left targets from 25m, 50m and 100m. It is easier for me to see misses, plywood is destroyed by pellets. Today I was sopuse to preapare all for 150m attempt. But I hit already today.



Plywood full of holes.

Nice job !!!.... Marty will have to rule, but it looks to me like you could be our first Member to requalify at that level at over 150 yards....

Good shooting Ivan. I upgraded you on the yardage but you still qualify as a member on the list. Keep trying I sure you'll be able to move up in divisions on the list.

I will try to upgrade divison. But now I am more courios up to which distance I can go. With 200m I have a problem, 4th bank is higher, and POI drop  is double more than  on 150m. Prone I will not do before warm weather.

And I am setting up some parameters. For example every 50m I have to move POA for 1MOA (4clicks) to the right. Pellet spin drift or drift mixed with missalignement, I am still investigating.

On this target it is obvious I moved to much. I had some slight wind, so I moved total 14 clicks to right (3.5 MOA).

And the rifle is still braking in (700 pellets shot), it is still not fully stable. I have +- 9 FPS muzzle velocity. 19 FPS min to max (with clean barrel before ledding with few dozen pellets). And I can feel that on long range.

How much pellet spin drift you have?

I belive I didn't perfectly aligned Hawke scope shims (with level gauge tool), difference is hard to messure, visual apperance is aligned.
I placed additional anti slip tape (took from Gamo mounts) to protect the scope from slipping and damage, which makes alignement difficult, but it protect the scope. I can live with that, as long as scope is protected.

Ivan, this is exciting stuff. A springer shooting groups out to 164 yards!   8)   Very cool!
Keep it up!
I need to get out to the range to attempt the 100 yards soon!
